Pakistan Wednesday hanged four men linked to the Taliban's massacre of more than 130 schoolchildren, with parents of victims saying they deserved "no forgiveness" as the attack anniversary approached.The executions, which officials said were carried out Wednesday morning at a prison in the northwestern city of Kohat, were the first in connection with the December 16 attack on an army-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar. The attack was Pakistan's deadliest, and shocked and outraged a country already scarred by nearly a decade of extremism.Parents of the Peshawar victims meet regularly, and Wednesday's gathering had been scheduled before news of the hangings broke.Rights groups have also criticized the resumption of executions, accusing Pakistan of hanging an estimated 300 people in less than a year -- the majority of whom had not been convicted of extremism.
